Comments
Comments: Having done the whole 20+ mile traverse in one day, I decided to be more rational about it and break it up. It's a much more forgiving hike when done in two halves. Wind was present on day one, and howled like a banshee on day two. MW-OBS called for 50 sustained, gusting to 80 on the higher summits. It was a bit less where I was, but I still felt a bit tossed around. The clouds lifted as I descended Moriah, so I did get a few views of the Wild River Wilderness, which was pretty awesome. There's always something to come back to.

Photos and a more detailed write-up are on my blog, as always. Share and enjoy!
